istry. In order to arrange the best possible
programs for this occasion, ACS Washington
headquarters has set exceptionally early deadlines
for setting up final program schedules.
Thanks to the efforts of our various program
chairmen, an advanced stage has also been reached
in arranging the Fall programs. In accord with
the previous announcement, the symposia subjects
and chairmen are as follows: "Chemical Nomenclature",
Austin M. Patterson, 221 North King
St., Xenia, Ohio; 'ICommunication of Chemical
Information", Robert S. Casey, W.A. Sheaffer Pen
Co., Fort Madison, Iowa; and "Mechanical Aids
to Chemical Documentation", J.W. Perry, Room
14-S312, Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
Cambridge 39, Mass. These chairmen report that
a number of our colleagues from overseas will
appear on their programs. There is still a chance
that outstanding volunteered papers may find a
place in these symposia, and it is urged that
such papers be submitted for the consideration
of the appropriate symposia chairmen. However,
the time for submitting such papers is short.
With our 1951 programs well in hand, it is
not too early to start thinking about subjects
for the 1952 programs. Send your suggestions to
the new Chairman of our Program Committee, Mr.
M.P. Doss, the Texas Company, 135 E. 42nd Street,
New York 16, N.Y.
THE SECOND YEAR
Continued from Page One
conduct the voluminous correspondence required,
this bulletin could never have begun publication.
Even the current issue has depended upon this
organization for its Vari-Typing and mailing,
and it is a pleasure to welcome to the staff
of this bulletin the new head of the Station's
Technical Information Division, an old friend
and associate, John C. Lane.
While bestowing accolades, your editor would
also like to express his appreciation to the
Ethyl Corporation Research Laboratories for its
willingness to have him continue his association
with this bulletin, and to Miss Claire Olsen of
the staff of the Laboratories' Information
Division (which he now heads) for her enthusiastic
acceptance of the position of assistant
editor. "Medals of merit" for past services to
this publication should shine from the breasts
of the entire staff,particularly Robert S. Casey,
E.J. Crane, M.P. Doss, and J.W. Perry.
With continuity apparently assured; with
finances showing promise of coming under realistic
control; and with an increased staff willing
and eager to assume new responsibilities, there
seems no reason to believe that Chemical Literature
has reached its service zenith. Whether it
will ever be able to carry feature articles or
papers (should this seem completely desirable)
remains to be seen-many have urged this and
have volunteered to prepare material. Your editor,
in looking for ways to improve this bulletin's
service potential, must attempt to be realistic,
especially in regard to finances, the limitations
imposed by the present volunteer basis, and the
need to introduce only features which have real
value, but members must pardon his enthusiasm
for feeling that the Division of Chemical
Literature's own publication is already one in
whose preparation he can feel proud to participate.
RESOLUTION ON DIVIDED MEETINGS
At the September 5, 1950, meeting of the Executive Committee
of the Division of Chemical Literature, preparation
of the following resolution was unanimously
authorized, for presentation to the membership of the
Division for their action. Each Member of this Division
is urged to send his vote at once, for or against this
resolution, to: Mr. Robert S. Casey, Secretary, ACS
Division of Chemical Literature, W.A. Sheaffer Pen
Company, Port Madison, Iowa. Results will be transmitted
to ACS National Headquarters.
The Division of Chemical Literature hereby
resolves to oppose the holding of Divided
National Meetings of the American Chemical
Society for the following reasons:
I. The membership of this Division is composed,
in the majority, of individuals who have considerable
interest, if not their primary interest,
in one or more of the industrial fields of chemistry,
such as agriculture, medicine, petroleum
and rubber, and/or the general fields such as
organic and analytical chemistry. It is impossible
to satisfy the needs of all of the members
of this Division at any Divided meeting.
2. The Divided Meetings are of much less value
to at least part of the Division's members. The
inevitable result is lowered attendance.
3. Lowered attendance, the absence of full
programs of other divisions, and fewer contacts
all tend to encourage the authors of acceptable
papers to postpone presentation until the next
full meeting of the Society. The effect is extreme
difficulty, if not impossibility, it
Here’s what’s next.
